Mr PROWSE (FORREST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -I have received the following telegram signed by the Mayor of Albany, the chairman of the Albany Road Board, Mr. Stacey for the Australian Labour party, and the president of the Albany Chamber of Commerce : -

State Wool Committee intimates Central Wool Committee decided not to alter existing arrangements send Albany wool Fremantle undumped. Have made full inquiries and ascertained all interested parties including brokers favorable Albany dump used fullest capacity. Railways keen wool should be dumped Albany before transport Fremantle.

I ask the Minister for Commerce whether his department authorized the Central Wool Committee to rail the undumped wool to Fremantle after appraisement. If so, doeshe not think that, by centralizing the dumping operations at Fremantle, he is depriving men resident in Albany of much-needed work?
